  • The Ill-Treatment and Torture ( ITT) Data Collection Project uses content analysis to measure allegations of government ill-treatment and torture made by Amnesty International ( AI) from 1995 to 2005. ITT's country-year ( CY) data quantify AI allegations of ill-treatment and torture at the country-year unit of observation and further across different responsible government agents and across different econo-socio-political groups of alleged victims. This paper introduces the Ill-Treatment and Torture country-year data, describes quantitative patterns likely to be of interest to researchers focused on the study of international non-governmental organizations ( INGOs) and human rights, and suggests a number of theoretically motivated questions that can be explored using the ITT country-year data.
